Title: Spoken English, Applied Linguistics and TESOL
Subtitle: Challenges for Theory and Practice
Edited By: Rebecca Hughes

Leading researchers in the field of spoken discourse and language teaching
offer an empirically informed, issues-based discussion of the present state
of research into spoken language. They address some of the complex and
rewarding opportunities offered by these emerging insights for language
education and, specifically, for TESOL. They ask whether new data and
evidence that spoken discourse is a distinctive genre will challenge
existing language theories and teaching. What could be the practical
outcomes for curriculum, teaching approaches, materials and assessment? A
stimulating resource for researchers and for professional and student
language teachers.
